Default Rear Parking Brake Cable

Does anyone know how do disconnect the rear parking brake cable from the
rear backing plate on a '66 coupe with rear drums?

If it's like my '65, you have to compress those spring-loaded
fingers...or tines...or prongs to get it out of the backing plate
right?
On one side I was lucky and used a small screwdriver to push one tine
in at a time while I was pulling on the cable and it came out. The
other side I used a small hose clamp around the tines to compress them
at the same time. Someone once told me a box-end wrench would work
too.

i ended up getting ****ed on my '68 and replaced both rear brake cables.
i had no luck using screwdrivers and/or pliers to collapse the 3?
fingers. you might try going in with a series of box end wrenches or
like was just said, deep sockets to close down the fingers so they will
fit through the hole
